water the seeds 
of your future happiness.”

can be won. It exists… it is real…
it is possible… it's yours.

Quotes of the day... 10/19/16

From my friend and writer, 
the fiery and fierce, 
Jillian Locke ♥ 

“We need to know the prey we hunt 
before we string our bows 
and focus our energy. 
We need to see the beasts (goals) we seek. 
We need to be clear on why 
this conquest matters so much (process), 
and we need to give ourselves over wholly 
to the energy of the wood (trust) 
and the cunning of our heart (instinctual love) 
if we are to see the tracks, weaving through 
the roots and hidden beneath the fallen leaves.”

Quotes of the day... 10/18/16

There are lenses we use to see the world;
Anger, joy, pessimism, optimism, etc.
Each experience will be perceived
according to the lens we choose
to see through.

“All the world is made of faith, 
and trust, and pixie dust.”
     ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

It’s a wonderful thing,
believing in people.

Quotes of the day... 10/17/16

“No matter what happened to you in your past, 
you are not your past, you are the resources 
and the capabilities you glean from it. 
And that is the basis for all change.”
     ~ Jordan Belfort 

“I’m not saying that you should deny 
the difficult events of your life. 
But the fact that you survived 
is also a wonderful story to tell. 
And that story, the story of the way 
you came through a difficult situation, 
found resources within yourself 
or outside of yourself, 
taken from that experience what you wanted 
and what you didn’t want going forward — 
that is a story that can inspire 
you and others to heal and grow.”
     ~adapted, Golda Poretsky

Quotes of they day... 10/13/16

“I believe that the imagination 
is the passport we create 
to take us into the real world. 
I believe the imagination 
is another phrase for what 
is most uniquely us.” 
     ~ John Guare 

We are poetry material
full of cloudy subtleties. 
Words burst in our essence 
and we carry their dust 
in the pores of our ethereal individuality.
     ~adapted, Franz Kafka
